EXPRESSIONS OF BREATH // Skostedet
UTSTILLING UNDER KUNSTNEROPPHOLD I S12 GALLERI OG VERKSTED
BERGEN, OKTOBER 2018
47 people participated as co-creators in the studio and captured the shape of their breath in glass.
Each one lifted, listened and touched the glass shape - their expression of breath.
Expressions of Breath 3 gave the audience of all ages an opportunity to shape hot glass with their own breath as the only tool. They pushed the material boundaries of the liquid glass to its limits thus creating an expression of their breath. The fragile form cools quickly after being blown, and participants were then given time to hold and experience their breath in glass in the backyard. All the Expressions of breath were on display in S12's project room and were a "work in process" exhibition while it was being produced. Friday the 12th of November 2018 there was an exhibition opening.
The project was carried out under the scheme local AiR in S12 as part of their focus on involving local artists in the studio.
Supported by S12 Gallery and Studio, NLA University college, Hordaland fylkeskommune, Bergen City council and Norwegian association for Craft- Kunsthåndverk blir til.
